Art Work

I'm a storyteller.

My background in linguistics has definitely influenced my visual artistic practice. Through text‐based works, collage, sculpture and installation I develop personal stories from ordinary life. I am interested in the impediments that prevent a total approach to language, emotions or senses. I choose simple, everyday materials to address themes such as exclusion, belonging and the power that lies in vulnerability.
